London Spanish Film Festival
Continuing with more opportunities to catch world cinema in September, the 6th London Spanish Film Festival will be showing a large number of UK premieres from the country.
Running from 24 September to 7 October, this festival offers a rare chance to see critically acclaimed works before they hit the big screen. Top screenings include Daniel Monzón’s acclaimed thriller Cell 211 and the first English language feature by Julio Medem (Sex and Lucia), Room in Rome. A retrospective on the work of Spanish actress Maribel Verdú (Y Tu Mamá También, Pan’s Labyrinth, Tetro) and a talk by BAFTA award-winner Carlos Saura (Carmen) are other highlights in this year’s festival programme, which also pays special attention to cinema from the Catalan and Basque region
